A New Jersey teacher under investigation for telling teens she hopes they die from coronavirus.
“Parks closed. The whole area,” Griggs says. “Get it through your thick head. You are the reason we are in this situation. You are the problem, not the solution. Go ahead keep recording. Who are you going to show it to? Post me on social media. You’re the idiot doing the wrong thing. I’m just trying to save your ass and save your life. But die, OK. I hope both of you get the coronavirus. I hope you both die a long, painful death.”

A math teacher at Steinert High School was caught on video this week shouting at a group of teenagers playing football in the park that they should “die a long, painful death” from the coronavirus.
The teacher was identified by multiple sources as Nicole Griggs, who has been a township teacher for the last 15 years and also taught middle school, according to the district website.
One of the teenagers, a freshman at Steinert, told The Trentonian that he and a group of school friends were playing football Thursday at the former Homedell School, on the 500 block of East Franklin Street, when Griggs stopped to admonish them from behind a chain-link fence.
One of the township students captured the encounter on Snapchat and sent it to friends.
Then another Steinert student posted the clip on TikTok, a social media platform that often features viral videos, with the caption, “Y’all Mrs Griggs is losing her damn mind how tf is she a teacher #coronavirus.”
At first, Griggs, who appears to be wearing a gray sweatshirt and walking her dog, seems to be looking out for the teens by telling them the parks are closed because of the virus outbreak.
She asks them if they need her to scream the warning “loud enough so you can hear me over your music. Parks closed. You will get arrested if the cops come.” More
Your tax dollars just seem to buy you a lot of crazy in today’s school systems. No sane parent would trust their child’s education to this ranting, vile woman. I would bet that homeschooling is going to become much more popular after this is all over.Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
